. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w
ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply o
to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm t
to cut security by $300 billion be ynd what the obama administration requested. >> the congressman cut embassy security in thinks budget by $300 million below what we asked for. >> what are the facts? the subpoenaing bill proposed did reduce the amount of security by over $300 million. verdict? true. but the democratic led senate did restore some of the funding in the final version signed by the president had bipartisan support for some reduction of funds for embassy security. on the issue of iran, the candidates argued a lot about nuclear weapons security. the ability to make nuclear bombs has quintupled under the obama administration. >> we cannot allow iran to gain luck lar weapons capability. let's take a look where we have come fro. war accident obama, they had enough material to make one bomb. now they have enough for five. >> the fact, the institute for science and national security said when obama took office in 2008, the iranians had enough to make one weapon. now they have five. if they had the capability to enrich uranium, which to the best of our ability, they don't have th
with the obama administration. the vice president was put in charge of the negotiations by president obama and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have a stat tuls of forces agreement because they failed to get one. that's what we were talking about. when it comes to the veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude, including your some, bo. >> thank you. >> but we also want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. and we agreed with the 2014 transition in afghanistan. but what we also want to do is make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself. but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we're watching is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy, which is making things more chaotic and us let safe. >> i want to talk to you right in the middle of the crisis, governor romney, and you're talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate right in the middle of the crisis in >> on that sam
. the obama administration has decided not to defend doma. this couple was married last year after "don't ask, don't tell" was repealed. good morning to both of you and thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> good morning. >> now you have join add lawsuit challenging doma, but your case may be a little more immediate, certainly more urgent than others. charlie, tell us why. >> well, i've been recently diagnosed back in april with less than six months to live. that's been updated to 12. i'm doing really well but that's a big concern because if i were to pass away, karen wouldn't receive any of the spousal benefits, is your viever benefits that are out there. >> what type of cancer are you battling? >> breast cancer. basically stage iv breast cancer. >> charlie, our thoughts are with you. know this is a very tough battle. you got out of the military for ten years and you were typing school, right? so why did you get back in. >> i was teaching school in kentucky and in 2004 i went to a conference and i went to the a conference and was talking about how i had been in the military and a princip
what it's telling the obama administration. let's listen. >> as they learn more facts about exa what happened, they changed their assessment. that's why there is also an investigation headed by tom pickering, a leading diplomat from the reagan years, who is doing investigation as to whether or not there are any lapses, what the lapses were, so they will never happen again. >> and they wanted more security there. >> well, we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. >> we hear the pronoun he's using, it is we. many of the -- many agree the bo bone of contention is the we were not told the u.s. diplomats needed more security before the fatal attack on september 11th. romney didn't say which state department official that be with. he didn't say specifically which testimony. let's start with that. can you discern what romney was talking about when he said biden contradicted that sworn testimony? >> well, i would say number one that is probably a reference to eric nordstrom, who was the regional security officer, that means he works for the state
in the benghazi attack accuses the obama administration of lying to her. it's hard to see opportunity in today's challenging environment. unless you have the right perspective. bny mellon wealth management has the vision and experience to look beyond the obvious. we'll uncover opportunities, find hidden risk, and make success a reality. bny mellon wealth management if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. side by side so you get the same coverage, often for less. that's one smart board. what else does it do, reverse gravity?

companies. something that the obama administration ultimately implemented. by the letter, the verdict is false. romney never said let detroit go bankrupt. also, his opposition to the bailout or direct federal investment puts him at add odds. will the obama plan cause people to lose insurance? ryan said it will cost 20 million people their insurance. >> look at the string of broken promises. if you like your health care plan, you can keep it, try telling that to the 20 million people who will lose insurance. >> the congressional budget analysis mentioned the possibility -- the outside possibility of 20,000 people losing cover rage due to the law. part of a range of possibilities, including 3 million people gaining coverage. in the conclusion, the cbo and the joint committee on taxes judgment is a sharp decline in employment based health insurance as a result of affordable care act is unlikely. unlikely. so our verdict here, wolf, is simply it's false. paul ryan went out on a limb there. and during the last segment, i pointed out paul ryan was right when it said iran has enough material
call with president obama, his first words were you're welcome. how is the administration dealing with this? do they see it the same way? >> reporter: he went into this happy to be able to defend the honor of the white house and this administration and will probably come out of it feeling he did that. and the administration and the campaign were thrild with the performance last night for the very reasons ron outlined. especially because biden forcefully made the case that the democratic base wanted to hear about the president's economic message. essentially, you know, many democrats were so disappointed after the president's performance last week. somebody needed to come out and reenergize them. and so that's what the vice president was aabble to do. now it's up to the president to see if he can pick it up from there next week, don. >> don, real quick, still the hole in the donut, like obama last week, as strong as biden was, almost nothing about what a second term, second obama term would bring, particularly on the economy. big missing piece. tough on the republican choice, tough
would do and tell us how a romney administration would run america. i do think that president obama is going to come back with a very different strategy. i think his advisors have probably told him that he needs to put more energy into this. he may pursue a strategy of trying to fire up his base, i don't think that's what he needs to do to win undecided voters. part of me kind of hopes he does it. >> fascinating night. i'm sure we will all talk again next week. my money is on an obama fight back but will it be enough? i'm not convinced. i thought he was very lackluster the other night. he has to really raise the game pretty substantially. thank you to my all-star panel. we'll be back next with more politics and much more with joe walsh from the eagles. a lot to say about the race and life in the fast lane. capella university understands businesses are trying to come back from rough economic times. employees are being forced to do more with less. and the need for capable leaders is greater than ever. when you see these problems do you take a step back, or do you want to dive right in
was ready to go there. what is the answer? >> according to president obama's policy, not necessarily what joe biden said. but according to policy, we transition to afghan forces in 2014, and the administration maintains flexibility to keep forces or redeploy forces, even in a non-combat role. there are a number of years after 2014 that the administration's own policy allows for the same thing. congressman ryan believes that 2014 should be the transition, and they think the flexible the president built in is appropriate. but the goal, handing off security to the afghan forces on that very important issue there, is no difference between the president and governor romney. >> stylistic points of debate, we heard vice president biden interrupting congressman ryan. calling him in friend. did you prepare for that? >> i watched a lot of biden debate tape over the years. i never seen him perform quite like he did tonight. i'll leave it to others to judge whether it was appropriate for the office of vice president. the contrast was striking on substance, where congressman ryan, laid out a plan, gov
this morning with priorities u.s.a. action, a superpac that supports president obama. also a former white house press secretary for the administration. hammering behind me, i apologize in case it drowns me out as we're talking. twitter was on fire where people would think absolutely, positively it was paul ryan who won or absolutely, positively it was joe biden who won. ultimately, though, this was about playing to the middle. when it comes to that realist realistically, who do you think had the advantage there? >> i think if you look at the polls, your poll said that that debate was tied. cbs said that vice president biden did remarkably better than congressman ryan did. but i think if you just look at the two -- if you look at the vice president, the vice presidential nominee on the republican side, the facts don't stack up for the republican side. and i think that joe biden did an excellent job of point iing t where the math didn't add up, where his inexperience on foreign policy showed ryan to be unprepared and a little off kilter. and i think that joe biden, overall, did a much better job
people. others, like one former ceo, suggested the administration was playing fast and loose with the numbers. some people were upset by that. >> to say something like this is like donald trump saying that president obama is not an american citizen without any proof. you are jack welch. >> more of that heated exchange next. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you make 70,000 trades a second... ♪ reach one customer at a time? ♪ or help doctors turn billions of bytes of shared information... ♪ into a fifth anniversary of remission? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it. inspiration. great power. iconic design. exhilarating performance.

. the current rate is the lowest level since president obama took office. >>> jack welch set off a fire storm yesterday, sending out this tweet questioning the validity of yesterday's unemployment number, accusing the administration of changing the numbers. mr. welch appeared on "anderson cooper 360" last night to talk about those allegations. >> i've got a tweet throughout that i stand by. >> right. but you don't regret -- >> i can't prove that they did anything. >> but in your heart, you think they somehow cooked the books? >> i don't know. but i do know this. that these numbers are implausible. >> so many politicians these days are saying like -- like michele bachmann will say something that factually is not correct or not prove nl and then they'll say i'm just asking the question. but is it responsible to say i'm just asking the question? >> should have put the question mark at the end like i did last night. a question mark would have been better at the back of that. >> so you are kind of backing away? >> i'm not backing away. >> do you wish you could amend your tweet? >> i wish i added t
